Saturday was such a busy day for me! My brother was still in town, so I decided to do some touristy things with him. Later on, I went to Sarita’s new swanky apartment for a fun get together.
We started at the Empire State Building because I have free express tickets, and my brother has never been. I’ve been up there so many times for work related events this past year, and it still catches my breath every time. I just can’t get enough of this tiny island. I love picking random things out from a far distance. I love showing people where the little parks are hidden away behind the tall buildings. I love staring straight down and look at the ant-sized people moving without knowing they’re being watched. It’s just great to see so far away from up top, being in the center of it all.
After our fun visit to the Empire State Building, my brother went back to the apartment, and I continued the journey with my boyfriend. We had a little party to go to in Queens, but before that, we stopped in the New York Public Library– such a stunning landmark! It’s one of my favorites…
I bought some Haitian rum to the party. When I made it to Sara’s house, the pig she has been boasting about all week was still in the preparing process. Poor little, delicious piggy. After 5 hours and a lot of help, the pig was eaten at 1AM by about 12 really hungry, drunk people and 1 really sober Lauren.
